The Baby Needs Some Fresh Air
by Barbara Rossi Prudente Documentary Italia/Italy 2008 58'

A documentary as an act of love toward her newborn daughter, her people, her city: Caserta. In this description of the Campania garbage crisis, the film starts from the viewpoint of a mother worried about her children's health. But her concern grows to include the rest of the local population when she discovers dioxin in mother's milk and buildings made with radioactive waste mixed into the cement, along with other hidden wrongdoings that have created an unsustainable situation. Interweaving interviews, animation sequences, and footage of the garbage crisis as it unfolded, the film takes a highly personal approach to chronicling one of Italy's most dramatic recent events. <%YOUTUBE=Nu_ab34zcIk%>
